Most widely held works by D Williams
Probability with martingales by D Williams( Book )

57 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a masterly introduction to the modern, and rigorous, theory of probability. The author emphasises martingales and develops all the necessary measure theory
Weighing the odds : a course in probability and statistics by D Williams( Book )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Statistics do not lie, nor is probability paradoxical. You just have to have the right intuition. In this lively look at both subjects, David Williams convinces mathematics students of the intrinsic interest of Statistics and Probability, and Statistics students that the language of mathematics can bring real insight and clarity to their subject. He helps students build the intuition needed, in a presentation enriched with examples drawn from all manner of applications, e.g., genetics, filtering, the Black-Scholes option-pricing formula, quantum probability and computing, and classical and modern statistical models. Statistics chapters present both the Frequentist and Bayesian approaches, emphasising Confidence Intervals rather than Hypothesis Test, and include Gibbs-sampling techniques for the practical implementation of Bayesian methods. A central chapter gives the theory of Linear Regression and ANOVA, and explains how MCMC methods allow greater flexibility in modelling. C or WinBUGS code is provided for computational examples and simulations. Many exercises are included; hints or solutions are often provided." -- BOOK JACKET
Diffusions, Markov processes, and martingales by D Williams( Book )

27 editions published between 1979 and 2006 in English and Basque and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stochastic integrals : proceedings of the LMS Durham Symposium, July 7-17, 1980 by LMS Durham Symposium( Book )

22 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stochastic analysis and applications : proceedings of the international conference held in Swansea, April 11-15, 1983 by A Truman( Book )

19 editions published in 1984 in 3 languages and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diffusions, Markov processes ; and martingales by L. C. G Rogers( Book )

54 editions published between 1979 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now available in paperback, this celebrated book has been prepared with readers' needs in mind, remaining a systematic guide to a large part of the modern theory of Probability, whilst retaining its vitality. The authors' aim is to present the subject of Brownian motion not as a dry part of mathematical analysis, but to convey its real meaning and fascination. The opening, heuristic chapter does just this, and it is followed by a comprehensive and self-contained account of the foundations of theory of stochastic processes. Chapter 3 is a lively and readable account of the theory of Markov processes. Together with its companion volume, this book helps equip graduate students for research into a subject of great intrinsic interest and wide application in physics, biology, engineering, finance and computer science
Diffusions, Markov processes, and martingales by L. C. G Rogers( Book )

46 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This celebrated book has been prepared with readers' needs in mind, remaining a systematic treatment of the subject whilst retaining its vitality. The second volume follows on from the first, concentrating on stochastic integrals, stochastic differential equations, excursion theory and the general theory of processes. Much effort has gone into making these subjects as accessible as possible by providing many concrete examples that illustrate techniques of calculation, and by treating all topics from the ground up, starting from simple cases. Many of the examples and proofs are new; some important calculational techniques appeared for the first time in this book. Together with its companion volume, this book helps equip graduate students for research into a subject of great intrinsic interest and wide application in physics, biology, engineering, finance and computer science
International business strategy by John Ellis( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Body story by D Williams( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Body Story takes the reader on a fantastic voyage through the most fascinating organism on earth: the human body. Using critical events familiar to us all, it brings to life the incredible unknown landscape of the body's interior." "The story of a mother-to-be helps us to understand the widespread effects on a woman's body when a new life vies for control. A childhood accident illustrates the body's miraculous power of self-repair. A singer infected with the flu virus demonstrates how our bodies become battlegrounds as our immune system attacks the invader. A young man on a night out reveals the truth about our most mysterious organ - the brain - and in particular its response to alcohol and sexual arousal. A middle-aged man with heart disease, illustrates many of the problems our hearts face and helps us to know how to combat them. Finally, an older man prepares for the end of his life and we see how the body gradually slows and eventually each of our organs shut down."--Jacket

Werner Herzog's The wild blue yonder( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A science-fiction fantasy film with a serious message from legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog: As humans search for a new planet to colonize, aliens attempt to settle on the nearly uninhabitable earth. Herzog worked with NASA and musician/photographer Henry Kaiser to create incredible documentary images from outer space and beneath the Antarctic Ocean, and combined these with Brad Dourif's performance as an alien interviewing real-life respected scientists -- culminating in a personal plea to save our planet
